Say your CVS checkout is in ~/pgsql, and you make a build directory
at ~/build.  You go
        cd ~/build
        ../pgsql/configure [args as usual]
        make install

This touches no files under ~/pgsql, except for possibly updating the
architecture-independent derived files (gram.c and so forth).  The
original intent of the feature, I think, was to simplify building for
multiple architectures.
